Prepare to Be Dazzled By the Most Jaw-Dropping Met Gala Looks of All Time

When fashion meets art.

There’s nothing quite as magical as the Met Gala. It’s the one night where celebrities, socialites and fashion powerhouses align to bring the glitz and the glamour to the red carpet. Newsflash: Being basic and subtle is not part of the dress code!

The Met Gala is an ultra-exclusive playground for stars to spread their peacock wings and show off larger-than-life designs created by the industry’s top designers. You’re guaranteed to see a parade of unbelievable pieces worthy of display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Case in point: Rihanna‘s dreamy haute couture ensemble by Guo Pei that cemented its place in fashion history. The songstress (and newly minted billionaire) lit up the room in a bright yellow, fur-lined cape that enveloped the red carpet with its 16-foot train. 

Following last year’s hiatus due to the pandemic, the Met Gala makes its much-anticipated return on Monday, Sept. 13. “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” is this year’s theme.
